Newly-single Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff is doing the dirty tango with PETA in a new ad against wearing fur. The 31-year-old put her fur-wearing days behind her after watching baby seals being clubbed to death. “I did wear fur, especially when I was little,” she said in an interview with the animal rights org. “But there are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel.”
“You have a choice as an individual, you have a choice in the press, in the world, whether to make a statement that you do support killing animals or make a statement when you don’t,” she added. “And you can still be as chic as you can possibly want to be.”
